but now i have finally completed building it!
check out my buddy Hobie Hansen‘s brand new website!!!
pretty pumped on the backend design of it. incorporated a new way of putting it together making it possible for him to update the pictures in the gallery without my assistance. also just the flow of the website is much better than previous ones i have made.
to get to the site you can either click on his name above or click on the picture below.
just got back from a camping trip with some friends. headed up to the redwoods and then down to big sur. both are really beautiful places this time of year.
i forget how refreshing it is to be on the road. even though it’s tiresome to be in the car for hours on end, and hard on the body to sleep on the ground in cold weather. you get to turn off your cell phone and get away from the computer, tv and advertisements that are all around. you can sit and stare at the fire and think about nothing or think about things you normally wouldn’t. hanging out with buddies and shooting the shit. good times
bought a strobe kit….finally
Elinchrom BXRI 500/500 kit.
i am really impressed with the kit.
came with these small 26″x26″ softboxes, though they worked better than i had thought they would.
and came with a skyport transmitter with the receivers built into the heads. meaning they come wireless out of the bag. also you can control the heads from the transmitter. meaning i can turn the power up and down without having to walk over. useful when the key light is 8 feet high.
I have the key light just camera right, about a foot taller than my subject.
the other light is just behind the subject, camera left. aimed back at him just a tad to get the rim light while being able to light the background at the same time.
took a little break, but now im back.
when in san diego, dont take pictures of this building
or you will get hassled by this guy
this is inspector jordan. he works for the united states deparment of homeland security, and confused my friend hobie and i for terrorist because we were taking pictures (unknowingly) of a federal building.
i am now officially under surveillance by homeland sercurity.
i will now leave you with this song.
